A TRIBUTE TO OUR INDIGENOUS FAMILY

List of indigenous peoples

This is a partial list of the world's indigenous / aboriginal / native peoplesIndigenous peoples are any ethnic group of peoples who are considered to fall under one of the internationally recognized definitions of Indigenous peoples, such as United Nations, the International Labour Organization and the World Bank, i.e. "those ethnic groups that were indigenous to a territory prior to being incorporated into a national state, and who are politically and culturally separate from the majority ethnic identity of the state that they are a part of".

Note that this is a listing of peoples, groups and communities. Many of the names are externally imposed, and are not those the people identify within their cultures. As John Trudell observed, "They change our name and treat us the same." Basic to the unethical treatment of indigenous peoples is an insistence that the original inhabitants of the land are not permitted to name themselves. Many tribal groups have reasserted their traditional self-identifying names in recent times, in a process of geographical renaming where "The place-name changes herald a new era, in which Aboriginal people have increasing control over the right to name and govern their homelands."

This list is grouped by region, and sub-region. Note that a particular group may warrant listing under more than one region, either because the group is distributed in more than one region (example: Inuit in North America and eastern Russia), or there may be some overlap of the regions themselves (that is, the boundaries of each region are not always clear and some locations may commonly be associated with more than one region).

I woke up praying this prayer.  Ditto on all everyone said.  I feel like i'm home when I'm on here.  Enjoy the SunShine before the rain comes.  Rainbows of Love and Blessings

Beautiful images, beautiful meditations. As Eugene says, there is always such beauty here. I, too, am blessed to know wonderful people like you all. Thank you for this most wonderful post, dear LCF. Love and Light, always, Dot

There is always such beauty here.

When I come here I always sit and stare for a while with an unidentified longing. Like longing a relationship once had that you know can never happen again, because time moved on.

Wishing you and all the Redman family a happy and bright spring, too, LCF. I can't believe it is spring already--where has the time gone? The weather here is unusually warm--high 70's. It's great, hope it stays this way till fall. Love and Light, always, Dot
